Track-only Aston Martin Vulcan with over 800bhp debuts in Geneva

Aston Martin Vulcan is a track-only supercar limited to just 24 examples, making it one very rare track toy for exclusive bespoke driving experience offered only to a selected few.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated 7.0-litre V12 engine producing over 800bhp linked to a race-bred rear mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox sending power to the 345/30 x19 rear wheels and Michelin race specification tyres.

The Vulcan features a carbon fibre monocoque and body constructed by Aston Martin’s long-term specialist body engineering and manufacturing partner Multimatic, integral limited-slip differential, magnesium torque tube with carbon fibre propeller shaft and Brembo racing calipers acting on carbon ceramic racing disc brakes which measure 380mm in diameter at the front and 360mm at the rear.

The track-derived pushrod suspension with anti-dive geometry is complemented by Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars front and rear, driver-adjustable anti-lock braking, and variable traction control.

The new track car will comply with all relevant FIA race safety requirements and owners will be offered the opportunity to take part in an extensive and detailed programme of intensive track driver training that sees Aston Martin Racing’s Le Mans-winning Darren Turner support owners on the learning journey.

The very exclusive programme starts with the V12 Vantage S and One-77 road cars and the Vantage GT4 race car, as customers gradually build experience and develop their track technique, before beginning their time in the Aston Martin Vulcan.

Final performance data, together with further technical details about the ultra-exclusive track-only supercar, will be released closer to its track debut later this year.

Pricing details remain a mystery, but we have a feeling all 24 are already spoken for and the price tag was more than on any other Aston Martin currently in production.
